Private landlords - Accreditation Scheme
Tenant surveys and property inspections
Landlord Accreditation Scheme carry out tenant surveys on a random sample of 10% of accredited properties. Property inspections are carried out where:
- a tenant has raised a complaint with LAS and can provide evidence that the property fails the "Below Tolerable Standard" test verified by Environmental Health; and
- the Private Rented Housing Panel has issued a Repairs Enforcement Order. In these circumstances LAS would first liaise with the landlord to try and resolve the issues.
